Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Review For WRANGLER'S RESCUE By B.J. Daniels- 4*


Series: Montana Cahills #7

Author: B.J. Daniels
Genre: Romance/Suspense
Rating: * * * * 
Publishers: HQN
(Nov 20, 2018)
Paperback: 384 pages

She'll risk everything to bring her cowboy back home... 
One week ago, Cyrus Cahill told Ashley Jo "AJ" Somerfield that he'd be back in her arms by the weekend. He just needed to buy a bull
for his ranch, and then they'd pick up where they left off after that romantic ride through the foothills. But now he's gone missing and everyone - even the sheriff - believes he's dead. 
Everyone... but AJ. She suspects foul play and she won't rest until Cyrus is back home in Gilt Edge, right where he belongs. Because Cyrus isn't the kind of cowboy who breaks a promise. And since she's not the kind of woman who gives up on her man, AJ will risk anything to help bring him home... even her own life. 

Don't miss this suspenseful conclusion of The Montana Cahills series from New York Timesbestselling author B.J. Daniels.

Wow, what an awesome ending to an awesome series! Cyrus is not Daniel's typical hero, he is so shy it is almost painful. I don't know if she's had a Montana cowboy that wasn't so sure of their masculine appeal, it was actually kind of refreshing and cute. I loved how loyal and sure AJ was of Cyrus's feelings for her. I don't want to spoil any of the awesome twists and turns in this conclusion so will not say anymore about AJ's determination to discover what happened. If you haven't started this series now's the time to round up copies of the rest of the series and indulge in a binge read of one of the best of Daniel's series.

Review- SOMETIMES I LIE By Alice Feeney -5 *

Author: Alice Feeney
Genre: Psychological Mystery
Rating: * * * * *
Publishers: Flatiron Books 
(Mar 13, 2018)
Paperback: 272 pages
ISBN: 978-1250144843
FTC Disclosure: Borrowed from public library

My name is Amber Reynolds. 
There are three things you should know about me: 
1. I’m in a coma. 
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 
3. Sometimes I lie. 

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

This is one of those books that once started you won't want to put down and hours, nay, days afterwards you are going to question what you think happened. I won't rehash the storyline as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but seriously this is one twisty, turny book! If you like a good psychological mystery, put your life on hold and ban everyone from your home for the day and go for the ride of your life.

I'm still questioning what I think I know and it's been a week since I finished it and read everyone else's opinion of what they think happened (here). I keep having to remind myself though that the title was "Sometimes I Lie". I can so see this as the next great "Big Little Lies" type of TV drama.

 This does not affect my opinion of this book.

Cowboy lawmen make the best protectors 

Fleeing from her dangerous ex-boyfriend, on-the-run single mother Nicole Dyer takes refuge in a cabin—and is discovered by the ranch owner, Deputy Matt McKade. It’s easy to fall for the handsome lawman and his kind family, but staying at the ranch endangers them all. When everything Nicole loves comes under direct fire, can Matt keep her—and her heart—safe?

This is a tightly written romantic suspense that will keep you reading till the wee hours of the night. I found myself gripping my Kindle till my fingers cramped many times throughout this story. Having an adorable three year old tossed into the story definitely added to my enjoyment. The secondary characters were as engaging as the main characters and I loved the final twist in the story. Having read the earlier books in this series, it was nice to find out what this family had been up to since last visiting with them.
